* GreyAndGrayMorality: Though it's easy to assume the Sahtan Empire are the 'villians' as a conquering society, Dahm goes to great lengths to disspell such a clear-cut perspective - the Empire is very much as amoral as any civilisation in our own history.

** Vattu clings to these standards in Sahta: when Otti berates her for repainting her mark, she claims that because he has none, he has no name - and she shouldn't even talk to him. As of Book 2, though, the mark is gone for more [[TheRunaway practical reasons]].

* {{Badass}}: The War Man. It appears he's training Vattu to follow in his footsteps. Compounded by the fact that he (and his entire race, of which he was a powerful leader) [[BewareTheQuietOnes is completely mute]].

* GrannyClassic: [[http://rice-boy.com/vattu/index.php?c=373 Jinen,]] the toy-maker who makes brief smalltalk with Vattu. Seemingly the first matriarchial figure in Vattu's city life, as opposed to the eat-or-be-eaten mentality of everyone else; time will tell whether this proves significant.

* TheBlank: The War Men have no facial features.
